of other problems in the region were born. when america simply walked away once the votes withdraw. don't forget, there was a war under way in afghanistan at the time of 9/11. they were front lined active at that moment as the taliban were fighting other afghans. 9/11 obviously changed everything. the reason why the west is there is to answer a security threat being paved by the al qaeda organization in exporting terrorist attacks from its planning and strategic bases in afghanistan and in the tribal areas of pakistan. >> afghanistan has always been a country where it's a battleground of ideologies and unfortunately it's the after fan people who have to live through that battle. >> one narrative that i hear again and again, not only from afghans but also from pakistanis is, the abandonment they experienced after the withdrawal of the soviets and the withdrawal of u.s. aid to that region. after pumping in so much money and so many weapons, both of these super powers agreed to just stop, leaving huge numbers of armed militants, leaving a raging conflict, leaving millions and millions of r

are on america. >> there isn't a bill yet. the plan that will be voted on if just really in the formative stages right now. do you have any concern about the information that's throating around out there? we just did this fact check. there's so much that's wrong about what's being charged. and it is unfairness coming from both sides, but you have to admit, at least, that critics have been overboard in terms of some of the claims they've made, right? >> i agree. there's a lot of hyperbole on both sides of this. however, in debates like we had today here in new hampshire, the president limited the access to getting into his town hall, so we couldn't have those discussions. anybody who wanted access needs to submit their name and phone number in writing to the white house. and it was then vetted by the white house to determine who would be allowed into that town hall. how is that an open and honest debate? >> well, they did have republicans there at the meeting. >> there were very few republicans i can assure you. >> did you send your information to the white house? >> we absolutely did and we had

in question, amid speculation she is really a he. the story now from abc's "good morning america." >> questions that have been raised because of semenya's tremendous speed, muscular physique and deep voice. semenya, who is 18, burst on to the scene just a few weeks ago with a dominating performance in another racing competition. after that, international track and field officials asked the south african authorities to conduct a gender verification test. used to be that such tests required no more than dropping the pants. but today's version requires reports from a gynecologist, an endokrin knoll jiflt, an internal medicine specialist and a gender expert. >> we'll have a whole lot more on this very strange case coming up later tonight. >>> finally, the punch line, courtesy of mr. david letterman, a man who sure know hows how tod a grudge. >> you know who squeaky from is? in the 70s, tried to assassinate president ford. she's been let out of prison, been paroled. is she going to get a job? is she going to start dating? i mean, come on. if you think about it, there aren't many jobs
